About me

Hai Ling Chu (Ling) was born and raised in Temple City, CA. She received her B.A. from the University of California, Riverside in 2006 and her J.D. from the UNLV William S. Boyd School of Law in 2011 after which she was licensed to practice in State court as well as Federal Tax Court. In 2012, Ling founded the law firm of HLC Legal focusing mainly in the areas of Estate Planning, Probate, Tax Controversy, and Business Contracts. She believes strongly in service to the client and that a client should always be able to speak to their lawyer (not an assistant) regarding their issues.

In addition to her private practice, Ling is also an active member of the Las Vegas non-profit community. In 2014, she received the honor of being named Pro Bono Attorney of the Year from Nevada Legal Services, and she is the sitting Treasurer for the Asian American Advocacy Clinic. In her private life, Ling is an amateur coffee aficionado.
